Exploring State Parks Near Los Angeles with My RV Rental

 

Editor’s Note: One of our travel writer’s Jennifer F. recently rented an RV in Los Angeles and visited some of the local state parks. Here is Jen’s story…..

I recently decided that I wanted to spend some time exploring the state parks around Los Angeles and thought that the best way to do it was by RV rental.
